a floral "thank you" for her 22 yrs of organizing 
the Fairfield Fashion Show.

Exciting wearable art has always been a part of quilting shows. The first Fairfield Fashion show was in 1979 and it became one the most prestigious show for quilting and wearable art designers. Donna announced that this is the last year for the Fairfield Fashion Show. A few days later the good news is that the Fashion Show will continue under the sponsorship of Bernina.
